GS EAM Workshop “Standardized Data Formats”
Course for members of GS EAM and interested guests,
In parallel to the drive for academic journal articles to be open access, there is a push by funding agencies and other stakeholders for scientific data to be similarly open. The desired openness of scientific data is well described by the FAIR principles: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. Each of these FAIR principles requires far more cooperation within and between the different scientific communities and there is much work to be done on many levels in order to approach the envisioned FAIR data utopia. In this seminar, we will discuss how FAIR data principles impact scientific research practices and what is expected of both individual scientists and scientific organisations. The HDF5 file format and NeXus data format will be presented as specific practical tools for implementing FAIR data.
Our trainer is scientist at the Swiss Light Source in Villigen/Switzerland. He has contributed to the implementation of HDF5 at SLS and has been Chair of the International Advisory Committee of the NeXus initiative.
